FieldForce Mobile allows companies to communicate with their workers via two-way text messages.

| August 3, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO - Mosio, a mobile software company providing text messaging and mobile web solutions for businesses, announced the launch of FieldForce Mobile, a Web-based mobile messaging software for the mobile workforce. The service enables companies to save time and money over phone calls by communicating with their workers via two-way text messages.

Designed to give small and medium sized businesses a competitive mobile edge without the need to buy new phones or hardware, FieldForce Mobile is on-demand two-way text messaging software empowering companies with 5 - 500 reps, technicians, drivers or contractors working away from the office.

"The massive shift in the way people communicate with each other using mobile phones offers great advantages to businesses interested in communicating with their workers on-the-go. In the past this has been cost-prohibitive because of the need to buy new mobile devices and hardware, sign carrier contracts or develop apps. Mosio’s FieldForce offers companies the ability to let their workers use the phones they already have, but empowers management with internal business interactions from a web-based dashboard, offering visibility, control and increased revenues through improved work communication efficiencies,” says Noel Chandler, CEO of Mosio.

Chandler added, “Mobility has been reserved for larger companies willing to spend more money to outfit their workforces with the newest technologies, creating a competitive gap over smaller companies still using phone calls, push-to-talk or two-way radio communications for dispatch and field support. FieldForce levels the playing field for mobile workforce communications by tapping into two things everyone in business has: a text message-enabled phone in their pocket and the internet back at the office.”

Mosio’s FieldForce Enables Businesses to:
•    Improve visibility with a real-time dashboard for managers, dispatchers or support teams.
•    Increase productivity by reducing "talk time" and voicemail phone tag.
•    Grow sales by giving workers more time to focus on revenue-generating related activities.
•    Reduce costs by saving time and minimizing mistakes.

How it Works:
•    Workers simply text into a special “texting” number Mosio provides businesses to register for their company’s service.
•    Company agents receive and respond by typing via their computers on a web-based interface.
•    Outbound text messages can be sent to one or more team members with real-time alerts, reminders or updates.
•    Inbound text messages are sent in by workers out in the field to give status updates, ask questions or place orders.

Industry and Business Use Types
FieldForce is best suited for any company with a remote workforce (local, regional or national), currently using voice phone calls or radio communications for dispatch, who are not interested in purchasing new mobile devices, hardware or apps. FieldForce is being utilized or in discussions with companies providing or utilizing Field Reps, Remodeling and Construction, Plumbing, HVAC, Trucking and Logistics, Couriers, Pest Control, Alarm and Security, Staffing, Service Technicians, Retail Services and Sales Representatives.
